The country was eagerly waiting for the news that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the country on May 12 in the wake of the Covid 19 outbreak. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced the Rs 20 lakh crore Self-Help India (Atmanirbhar Bharat) package to boost the country’s self-sufficiency through the Covid crisis, reversing the notion that the Prime Minister is addressing the country at eight.
But the debate on social media was more about the meaning of the word ‘Atmanirbhar’ than about the economic package. Many people who struggled to understand the meaning of the word ‘Atmanirbhar’ finally searched for meaning in Google. The state of Karnataka and Telangana are ahead of those who have searched for meaning in the country. Followed by Maharashtra and Gujarat. Many people have tweeted asking if anyone can tell me what they think about the meaning of the word ‘Atmanirbhar bharat.
The word ‘atmanirbhar’ means ‘self-reliant’. So the word ‘atmanirbhar bharat’ means self reliant India.
